For almost exactly 200 years the small village has its own elementary school.
1997/98 unfortunately there is an extreme low in the pupil status.
(...improvement is however in view!)
The children at the age of 6-10 years are taught together in a class.
That is not unusual for the region of the middle and southern Burgenland.
Reasons are the unfavourable population trend and in addition, the fact that school
fulfils an indispensable social and cultural function for the village.
After unfortunate school-centralisation in the past one detected the importance of
the presence of school in the village.
The advantages of the small groups are most realisable using modern materials and methods.
The children profit from the natural climate of the small age-group, the favourable spatial
and material conditions and individualising instruction.
Problems (...or Chances for optimists) are:
the small options with groupings, the special request on the teachers, the partial incompatibility
with the specifications of the "normal" educational system and allegedly (!) the dear cash...
